A Tragic End

Recommended Posts



An overcrowded small boat sailed from Libya on October 03, 2003, destined to Italy with close some 100 people; they journeyed with little food, inadequate, scarcely fresh water and not with any blankets to shield from the cold on the sea.


What was expected to be a great journey ended with a very heartbreaking tragedy. All but 15 of them perished in the sea, succumbing to the strong cold tides of the Mediterranean, from the cold itself, starving and unbearable thirst.


To those 15 who barely made to Italy, some are in critical condition. Among them was a visibly shaken father who lost three of his four children.


13 dead bodies were found on the boat with other alive terrified 15 survivors; other bodies had been thrown into sea to make a room to those who were still alive.


Those 13 bodies were buried today {Friday, October 24} in Rome, Italy.


Here are their pictures:

People paying their last respects, among them some former Italian ministers

How they had wished to set a foot on any European soil. How they dreamed to a day of reaching to Europe. And it ended their bodies burried there, not living in Yurub.


O' may Allaah help our people, who long desperately for peace, seeking to find it in anywhere; some while seeking perishing on their way in the Saxara, on the seas and on lands.


May Allaah forgive them all, and grant jana: Aamiin. Aamiin, Allahoow, aamiin.
